I am very meticulous with each fabrication stage. I have learned what works best for me in creating a finished piece of high quality.
The baseplate underneath will be cut away until it is flush with the bezel wall and then I will solder the bails (the piece that connects to the necklace) to the whole piece. There are a lot of other things in between that I do, such as filing, and lastly everything is buffed.
One day I will make some videos of my process and post. I am always curious to see how other silversmiths work....so perhaps some of you are as well ;)
For now I am off to have some afternoon coffee (this is my favorite blend of coffee in the world - the Adobe Morning Blend to be specific) and then I will finish the necklaces and post pics of them when I am done.
